I had the privilege of visiting Rockport Marine Architect and Artist,
Bob Perry, as he was putting the finishing touches of small gold leaf
detail on this enormous and magnificent eagle sculpture which he was commissioned to create for The United States Coast Guard Barque EAGLE.
"The United States Coast Guard Barque EAGLE’s
eagle was carved by Robert Lee Perry in 1976 from
Brazilian mahogany, replacing a fiberglass version;
3340 pounds, thirteen feet long."
